Beautiful Riad Airbnbs in Marrakech
Good to Know Before You Book
Most of the riad Airbnbs in Marrakech are a private room in a house which means you’ll have a shared common space like a rooftop terrace, courtyard, or a pool.
Some of the rentals are for the entire riad but these are much more expensive in price. Be sure to check before booking depending on your preference. One great idea if traveling with a group of friends is to rent an entire riad!
For the location, I’d recommend being close to the medina and main sights you want to visit. Marrakech can be walkable if your accommodation is well-located.
This stunning riad is one of my favorites on the entire list. The decorations, the inner courtyard and everything in between checks off the list.
It’s an idyllic oasis in the city and a perfect spot for a group of family or friends traveling together.
Another one of those gems that have incredible details and furnishings. This private riad is close to all of the sights and is a spacious home for rent.
I love living room areas with plush pillows — perfect for a morning coffee.
If you’re looking to book a private room in a riad and score an incredible price, this Riad Ineslisa is amazing. I love how chic the entire riad is and each is room is well sized. Great for a couple or single traveler!
This neutral space is a total win. First and foremost, the location is one of the best in the city I’ve seen yet it is frequently reviewed for being quiet. The shaded terrace is a retreat after spending the day in the city. It has three bedrooms and fits up to seven guests.
This is the riad I stayed at the last time I was in Marrakech. It was incredible and the owners are so sweet. It’s almost like staying in a hotel with daily service and breakfast served downstairs as part of the stay.
You can book the rooms on Airbnb and are recommended to do so far in advance. Their terrace is also a wonderful spot to hang for the afternoon or swim in the courtyard pool.
Tranquil would be the best way to describe the city. This may be one of the most tasteful spaces in Marrakech, with a design-forward experience.
I’d consider this riad a perfect place for the person who loves slow travel. It’s a private home rental, so you’ll have the whole space to yourself.
Fitting up to 10 guests, this uber-luxe riad with 5 bedrooms may be one of the most expensive, and for good reason. Its multi-level home has several spaces like a pool and a rooftop terrace with lounge chairs. Near to the Palais Bahia, it’s a great home base.
Another amazing option in Marrakech and this one comes with a pool and a hammam. You’ll be renting a room in the riad, so share common spaces again but at an amazing price point.
Though technically a part of a riad hotel, I had to include Riad BE as it is bookable on Airbnb! This is one of those chic design riads in Marrakech and you’ve probably seen a photo on Instagram before. This is a great option for a stay in the city!

PS — Are You Booking a Trip Soon? Use My Booking Checklist!
These are the sites I use most to book my own trips. Using the links below is a great way to support Bon Traveler’s travel journalism at no extra cost to you. If you need help organizing your itinerary, get my free travel itinerary template here.
1. Book Your Flights
Use Skyscanner to find the best flights. It searches 100s of airlines and websites across the globe to ensure you’re not missing out on any route options or deals.
2. Book Your Accommodations
Use Booking.com for hotels and guest houses. They have the biggest inventory and consistently offer the best rates.
3. Book Your Tours & Experiences
4. Book Your Car
Use Discover Cars or Rentalcars.com to find the best car rental deals. I recommend comparing rental agency reviews on Google to ensure you are booking with the best company in that destination, as the reviews are often more accurate than the car rental search engines.
5. Don’t Forget Airport Lounge Access
Get a Priority Pass membership to gain access to 1,400+ VIP lounges and airport experiences worldwide. The Priority Pass app is the first thing I check when I have a layover. I’ve been a member for over a decade, and having a comfortable place to relax before and between flights makes air travel so much more enjoyable.
6. Don’t Forget Travel Insurance
I never leave the country without travel insurance. It provides comprehensive protection in case anything goes wrong (ie. illness, injury, theft, and cancelations, etc.). I use it frequently for my travels to stay protected.
My favorite companies that offer the best coverage and rates are:
